hussein obama. did you know his emotional name is hussein? the conspiracies about the president get even more conspiratorial than they have in years past. >>> we're beginning with a big deal, a story you will not see anywhere else, because it is an nbc news exclusive. nbc's national investigative correspondent michael isikoff has uncovered something that is not classified, but treated as one of the biggest secrets of this administration. it's something the administration has been fighting over with newspapers and with congress and with all different sorts of groups suing them who have been trying to contain what mike isikoff has gotten closer than anybody else to naming. and it is happening right in the midst of really big changes happening right now in national security in washington. today in washington, of course, was secretary of state john kerry's first day on the job. he was sworn in on friday after his confirmation hearing and his confirmation vote process that were frankly a breeze. in the end, the senate vote was nearly unanimous. 94-3 to confirm john kerry as secretary of state

exploded during the bush years, obama added on top of that. let's remember all the sequester does is shave off a little bit of the built-in growth of government spending. over the next ten years, the budget, even with the sequester, will go from $3.5 trillion to $5.9 trillion. we're still going to get $2.4 trillion more spending. we're just not going to get $2.5 trillion more spending. i view the sequester as a very tiny step in the right direction. >> jared, you look at some of these figure, if you include the emergency money more hurricane sandy, that just means we've had a 30% increase since 2008. now under the so-called sequester, we'll have a 5% increase. it's not like we're ripping the government to shreds. >> look, the way this works is you get negative fiscal impulse when you do less then th year than you did last year. let's go to the non-partisan congressional budget office. they told us on tuesday this year they expect the economy to grow 1.4%. i don't think there's anybody listening to my voice on our financial news network of cnbc who likes that number, 1.4%. i suspect you don

." one of the great political debates in washington and around the country has been whether barack obama is a highly partisan democrat bent on liberal agenda or a centrist searching for compromise. it's still early in his second term, but he's recently made moves that seem to answer the question. obama could easily choose a partisan strategy that would be politically effective. don't make deals with the republicans on immigration or entitlement reform and go into the 2014 congressional elections with those problems still alive. with no deal, democrats could campaign as the guardians of medicare and advocates of immigration reform, both electoral winners. that's why some democratic senators have begun to make demands well beyond what republicans can accept. but obama has chosen the second path. two weeks ago, as soon as a group of republican and democratic senators joined forces behind a unified approach to immigration reform, obama signaled his support for it. and this week in urging congress not to allow the so-called sequestration process to force spending cuts, the white house said th

president obama was first elected. he was elected on november 4th, 2008. and after the partisan combat of that election faded quickly and the country absorbed that this was going to be our new president of the united states, the approval ratings for barack obama soared. his approval rates went to 79%. by inauguration day 2009, nearly two million people would turn out on the national mall to see him sworn in. it was a heady, heady time whether or not you had voted for him. but of course that was not true for everybody. election day was november 4th. november 10th, so six days later, not even a week later, there was one republican congressman from georgia who was already denouncing the president-elect as both a marxist and a nazi. if you think about it, it's kind of a hard thing to pull off simultaneously, right? a marxist and a nazi? look at the time stamp here. november 10th, 2008. congressman paul broun of georgia telling the associated press already at that point that he, quote, fears that president-elect obama will establish a gestapo-like security force to impose a marxist dictator
